  • Demonstrate communications skills necessary to functioneffectively as a member of anengineering team.
  • Demonstrate an awareness of the social, ethical, and global impact of their work upon the profession and society.


Student learning outcomes for the degree are:  

       Graduates will have:

  • An appropriate mastery of the knowledge, techniques, skills and modern tools of electrical engineering technology.
  • An ability to apply current knowledge and adapt to emerging applications of mathematics, science, engineering and technology.
  • An ability to conduct, analyze and interpret experiments and apply experimental results to improve processes.
  • An ability to apply creativity in the design of systems, components or processes appropriate to program objectives.
  • An ability to function effectively on teams.
  • An ability to identify, analyze and solve technical problems.
  • An ability to communicate effectively in writing, and in oral presentation.
  • A recognition of the need for, and an ability to engage in lifelong learning.

The two-year A.S. Electrical Engineering Technology (EET) program is a combination of courses in electricity, electronics, computers, mathematics, science, and general academic areas. The program helps students prepare for employment as electrical/electronic or computer technicians,and provides knowledge in fields such as computer electronics, local area networking, industrial electronics, communication electronics, military electronics, automation, electronics servicing, and electrical power.  Upon completion of the A.S. EET, all credits can be applied to B.S. EET.

The Computer, Electrical, and Information Technology (CEIT) department also offers the Bachelor of Science with a major in electrical engineering technology, a Bachelor of Science with a major in computer engineering technology (CPET), and a Bachelor of Science with a major in information technology (ITC). In addition to the degrees, the department offers a minor in electronics and certificate programs in computer-controlled systems, electronic communications, power electronics systems, and computer networking. 

To earn the A.S., you must fulfill the requirements of IPFW (see Part 8) and complete the following courses:
